Activity for week of June 15th
Week 1 groups E31/E43:

This Summer Will Be Different
Information for students:

We have made it to the last week of lessons. With summer vacation around the corner, you are surely wondering what this summer will be like for you, your friends and your family.

As of May 31, it has been announced that public parks and pools will open but with guidelines about requirements like keeping the play structures clean. It’s our social responsibility to pay attention to the signs that will be posted at the parks and the pools and to respect the guidelines. Each of us needs to be thoughtful with our choices to keep ourselves and others safe over the summer. This summer will surely be different from what we’re used to.

It’s important to talk about the things that you will miss, and how that makes you feel. Voicing your feelings is healthy. 
It’s equally important to talk about your goals and how you wish to achieve them. Thinking positively is healthy and can help motivate you to try new things.

Our words have an impact on our well-being, as well as those around us.


1  -      Make a list of all the activities you will not be able to do this summer. Write the words you feel around that list.

2  -      Sketch what kind of activities you can participate in safely this summer. Think of activities that you are able to do safely that you now have the opportunity to do or try. Write POSITIVE words you feel around your sketch.

    Let's focus on what we can do and not what we can't.

Activity for week of June 8th
Week 2 groups E33/E32:

Should We Always Tell the Truth?

Information for students:

Think about what you already know on the importance of telling the truth. Now ask yourself, "Have I ever told a lie?" The answer is probably yes. Why do you think that is?

· Take time to reflect on the ethical questions listed below:

1- Why is honesty valued?

2- Is it always necessary to tell the truth?

3- Is lying acceptable if one doesn’t get caught?

4- Is lying acceptable if it’s to protect someone?

5- Do you remember a time when you told the truth and it was helpful?

6- Do you remember a time when you felt that the truth would cause more harm than good?

In the News

Students may be viewing the news about the anti racism protests happening in the world since the death of George Floyd. The video posted in my blog is for parents to view with their child.

This video (PG) can help open the discussion of racism/prejudice/discrimination:
